At the back of the house, find the heart of home and social central; a sprawling open kitchen and family room combo is sure to delight all family members. High end finishes create a sumptuous space in which to whip up culinary delights; beveled granite countertops offer ample workspace, while the double sink and endless cabinetry in rich honey-hued wood keep everything organized. Windows all around and a sweeping central island mean a stunning view is available when washing up, prepping, or during post-school and work routines.
